If you are one of those people that associates casino gambling with the very famous James Bond you may know that the game he mostly played was Baccarat and it was probably selected for the reputation baccarat gambling has as being a high stakes casino game plus it is surprising how few normal people know how to play. The reputation of baccarat gambling of being a casino game for high rollers and being difficult to play is a myth on both accounts. You can gamble on baccarat for very modest stakes at online casinos or even at the live casino option of most online casinos and as there are no decisions to be made by the baccarat player it cannot be called difficult to play. Gambling on baccarat is only complicated by the rather difficult system of counting the value of cards whereby anything over 9 must have 10 deducted so that 13 becomes 3 and 10 becomes zero but you don’t even need to know that to be able to gamble on baccarat as the dealer plays all the cards. In baccarat gambling there are only three possible bets which are for the players hand to win, the bankers hand to win or for the result to be a draw. In some circles Baccarat is known as Punto Banco which literally means Player or Bank after those two possible bets. As you may have gathered by now there are two hands dealt in baccarat gambling, one is called the player and the other is called the bank and you can bet on either. The dealer plays all the cards for both hands according to very strict rules which are detailed to some extent on our casino pages here at gambling.ie but you can quite happily gamble on baccarat without knowing what is going on which is maybe what Mr Bond was doing.
